Longscar Hall

What we know about this image :

Built in May 1967 the hall, originally run as a fairly successful catering and event venue by Hartlepool Corporation, has caused controversy since the day it was erected.

It was sold by the council to a private company and greatly remodelled in 1989, renamed Coasters and opened as a pub and nightclub but then became derelict and remained so for a number of years and was a serious eyesore. The rebuilt structure still remains and is a subject of controversy in local politics (2016) It was seriously further damaged in a 2018 fire.

Update : the building has finally been demolished in May 2019.
